Bring a full tank of gas

Starting the day in third place, Edwin Evers made a run up the Elk River and is fishing a little pocket near a boat ramp. He had the biggest bag of the day yesterday at 17-8 but did not gain much ground on his friend Jason Christie.

Evers had a glimmer in his eyes yesterday when I talked to him in the media room.

"Bring a full tank of gas," he said when told Steve Bowman and I would be covering him today. In fact, he just blasted off to spot No. 2.
